My homepage was arranged similar to a blog eversince, and now I moved most of the old articles into the blog history, and I dated them back to when I believe I wrote that sentence.
I tried to keep my old design, and I think it was pretty simple to achieve that, thanks to blosxom. The RSS-feed is linked under "feed" on the left.

To write and post articles I hacked a small script, that allows me also to update older postings while keeping the date, and shows up new categories or postings in red (for a second), while existing ones flash up in green:
The script shows the nice means of vim to execute commands "remotely" from the commandline. Here's the blog_update_vim_helper script:
